Here’s to another Monday with my Thrifty Six Sister collaboration. Today, through our styling we are celebrating blazers- not just any blazers- trail blazers! How appropriate this all is for March being the month celebrating women- true trailblazers since the beginning of time!
So, in terms of fashion, let’s check out what I consider a trailblazer in my own wardrobe…
Let me introduce you to my ‘piece de resistence’ – my very own pioneer when it comes to blazers. This versatile houndstooth beauty with a purple faux fur collar – styled on or off, was a lucky estate find of mine- seriously! I was eyeing this lady who was holding onto it for dear life, until she decided it was just too tight and put it back!! Lucky me snatched it up! It’s actually two sizes too big, but I don’t care; I moved the button and just wear it loosely, with flair. And notice those ribbon latches on the sleeve cuffs- they’re a conversation piece every time. It’s definitely my favourite blazer. Isn’t it just divine?!
Do you have a trailblazer beauty in your closet? We wanna know!
Now, let’s look at some of my Thrifty Six Sistas incredible looks:

Does anyone remember Miami Vice…
In this crazy Hawaiian print blazer, I could easily be a little crime-busting side-kick for Crockett and Tubbs.
There’s definitely something about it reminding me of that cheesy 80’s TV show.
Get a load of the colours and the zany tropical print and doesn’t it look sensational against this azure sky.It’s a genuine 80’s vintage menswear piece that works perfectly for Spring / Summer 21 and it truly lifts my spirits every time I wear it!

“Recognize this thrifted blazer?! I thought you might! I wore it for last month’s collaboration and figured the ‘trail-blazers’ theme was the perfect excuse to style it again in a different way. This time I picked a bold red top, cropped flared jeans (all the rage these days), and snakeskin sandals for a more casual, springy look. Love how it came together!”

“I found this camel colored mini corduroy men’s blazer on a recent thrifting trip for 50% off its $6.99 price tag. I am not sure what decade this blazer came from but it is definitely vintage. I layered it over a black thrifted sweater dress, added some leopard print tights and thrifted leather booties to complete this easy blazer outfit. Won’t you stop by my blog for more details!”

This is one of my favorite pre loved blazers because it reminds me of my beloved UK. It has sailing boats on it and whenever I am wearing it, it takes me back to the beach and sea of Rye. My favorite place to be! But I don’t wear it that much, I think because it feels like a real summer blazer and I wear a lot of black. And this one looks better on lighter or bright colors! And on denim! It’s by King Louie which is a fabulous retro orientated brand.

“I found this Escada blazer in a charity shop a few years ago for the bargain price of £5.99…I couldn’t believe my luck! For a really bold colour combination I decided to pair it with bright orange trousers – a first for me! I’ve layered the blazer over a paisley blouse and added more purple with a dainty bag – both fab charity shop finds too!”
The Thrifty Six is a group of international fashion influencers who meet once a month in our little space on the internet to share our thrifty outfits. On the third Monday of every month, we will all share an outfit based on a theme that features preloved wardrobe pieces. Shopping and reselling preloved clothing is so much better for the environment and you can find some of the best fashions in thrift or charity shops. The Thrifty Six are here to inspire you to shop second hand!
